Only a few weeks ago, Google announced that it’s ready to automatically block automatically playing video content. Those are so annoying, am I right? However, it turned out that the Chrome tool didn’t “just work,” as videos kept auto-playing on various sites, YouTube included. Apparently, that was because Google would interpret your habits from your browsing history, and determine which sites you wouldn’t want to be muted.
Google isn’t done fixing Chrome’s video autoplay feature, and it rolled out a new update.
Google announced the changes in a blog post. You’ll have to let Chrome learn what kind of videos you’d like Chrome to play the minute the site is loaded.
